    So I Realized Something About Myself As I Wrote This One Word

    I had realized it this morning when I was writing in my journal... and then one word that came out while I was writing. Unlikeable.  Not likeable. That's it, I had realized at that very moment. I am not a likeable person. I'm not.  I'm truly not. This isolated life...

    Resigned To My Fate

    Ever played Portal? One of Glados's lines rings really true to me."Unlikeable. Liked by no one. A bitter, unlikeable loner whose passing shall not be mourned. SHALL. NOT. BE. MOURNED."I don't really have any friends. The few people that do interact with me never have much to say...

    I've Accepted It

    I've always been unlikeable, my so called 'friends' will only get in contact with me when they want something such as borrowing my ID. Is it because they like me? No it's because they think i'm easy and will give in to what they want! I guess I have accepted now that the reason...

    Tired . . .

    Wow, I read these posts and it's like reading my own story.  I often think that this "personality problem" is my own personal handicap and how I think if I had the choice, I'd trade it for another in a heartbeat.  No one pays attention to this affliction.   No...

    Coping With Being Very Alone

    I have never been a popular person and throughout my life I have always felt misunderstood.  I know that I have many faults, but I don't think they are worse than anyone else's.  I just hate that pretty soon after I meet (I won't say join) a new group of people I am dismissed...

    I am unlikeable. I just realized this fact a

    few years ago when I was 49. I have a brother and sister, mother and father and although I'm sure they love me, they don't really like me much. I always thought I could change, trying on different personalities and such. I didn't have the energy to keep it up. I'm quiet but...

    Pretty sure of it, anyway. I just get this intense feeling that I annoy everyone every time I open my mouth. Le sigh. I think the only reason anyone keeps me around is because I am so pathetically desperate to be liked, that I let people walk all over me. And they know I do. And...

    What Is Wrong With Me

           I wonder why I bother caring what people think of me, but I do. No matter how hard I try I can't not care. I have a decent life, I have a wonderful husband that is my best friend, he's a hard worker and a good provider, I am a stay at home mom. We have 6 beautiful...

    I seem to repeatedly forget this truth: Just because someone is nice to you doesn't mean they like you. When people are nice to me, the knee-just reaction is to believe they like me. I'm 56 years old and can't seem to get it. And the people who really know me actually can't...

    I get the impresscold people think I'm cold and unapproachable, I'm reasonably attractive, tall slim and blonde yet people don't chat with me or try to catch my eye. I've been told I seem too cold and aloof, it's not that, I'm terrified!

    Don't Understand

    Ever since I was a child, I found it difficult for others to connect to me, I wanted to but it did not happen, this has been a pattern in most of my life. I am not snippy, nosey, loud, bossy, complaining or any other adjective I can think of. I do tend to stay to myself as I'm...

    I think that I'm a nice person. I don't seek out drama or fights and I don't nose my way into other people's business. I stop doing things when I know I'm actually bothering someone. I am as polite as possible to everyone I meet, regardless of whether I like them or not. I'm...

    I've been told that when it comes to looks, smarts, & brains, I'm above average, so then why is it that no matter how much I go out of my way to do good for those around me; all I get is hated by trolls, mocked by the criminal, and harassed on Facebook? Is falsly destroying...

    In my mind is always

    that they won't like me. Every person I know does not like me. Every encounter I make, starts off with - "I don't want them to see me. Because if they do, they won't like me." I am unlikable. And all my interactions are rejections because of my beliefs.
